Every author always hears how they “have to” have a blog to build their platform. Well, I don’t subscribe to the “HAVE TO” of anything, as you know. But I sure do love blogging. Unfortunately, I know as well as you do that it is a huge time-suck and can be a financial drain as well, especially between book releases. Well, I wanted to share with you a really cool program to help you monetize your blog that I’m excited about after years of following Michael Hyatt and Jeff Goins (who you’ve probably seen me mention more than once on the blog!) I met the man behind helping these awesome men monetize their blogs, Matt McWilliams, and he is teaching people how to do affiliate marketing. He’s got some awesome freebies for my audience.
The internet is an amazing invention
It has made so many things possible that our grandparents and great-grandparents couldn’t even imagine.
I mean, heck, you and I might be thousands of miles apart, and yet I wrote this blogpost and you received it within a few minutes!
The internet has also made thousands upon thousands of people very, very successful.
Jeff Bezos, Elon Musk, Mark Zuckerberg, Jack Dorsey, Larry Page and countless others all made millions because of the internet…
But for every Jeff Bezos or Mark Zuckerberg there are thousands who struggle every day to monetize their online platform.
Maybe you’re one of them.
Or maybe you would just like to make a little bit (or a lot) more money online.
If that’s you, I want to share a BRAND NEW guide that you HAVE to read!
My friend, Matt McWilliams just released his brand new ebook, Affiliate Freedom: The Quick Start Guide To Making Money Online Without Creating a Product and it. is. AWESOME!

In this guide, Matt breaks down why you should be doing affiliate marketing and even gives you his “START” method to help you monetize your blog immediately!
I have to tell you, I honestly think Matt should be selling this book…there is that much great info inside it!
On page 5 Matt says “Businesses monetize. Hobbies give away content indefinitely” (Sound like your author blogs?) And the things Matt shares in this guide will show you how to monetize YOUR business immediately!
Now, this isn’t focused directly at authors. This is for anyone interested in running affiliate programs. But when he’s talking about programs you can target, let us give you a hand in brainstorming:
You’re targeting readers, so you can use affiliate programs like Amazon Associates when you do book reviews. But that doesn’t pay a whole lot. So why not look at something like Owl Crate or any of these awesome book subscription boxes?
Kindle isn’t the only e-reader. Often if you can get an affiliate position, you can get the product for review for free.
Reach out to the top publishers in your genre. Notice that Booktube BLEW up with Sarah J. Mass’ latest book? That wasn’t an accident. A lot of booktubers make their money through affiliate links.
Do you write about interesting locales? Reach out and become an affiliate to a BnB, local businesses, or travel agents who your readers might contact to go visit that location.
With a new perspective, I bet there are lots of ways you can think of to incorporate affiliate marketing into monetizing your blog.
